The one thing I am passionate about...
I am passionate about improving our world, starting in the home and neighborhoods. I'm an idealist with a healthy dose of realism,although I'm open to any new ideas and beliefs that don't include hate.I've been an enviromentalist since I can remember...the new "green" trend is encouraging but driven by consumerism. Middle age has been a revival for my health , through exercise including Pilates, yoga, belly dancing and evening walks with neighbors have kept me sane during a searing separation and divorce. I'd like to get back to living and enjoying life. I would be nowhere without family and friends, and love helping people.
I typically spend my leisure time
Relaxing with friends around a table filled with good food and wine, having spirited conversation about anything and everything under the sun, including politics and religion--can you keep up with me?Enjoying the thrill of the hunt: thrifting and yardsaling with family and friends, and teaching this to my kids by example.Without Wednesday evening belly dance class-with it's boisterous and joyful atmosphere-I'd find it hard to get through the week.
The most influential person in my life has been
The first thing people notice about me
My sense of humor
The last book I read and enjoyed
Cutting For Stone, by Abraham Verghese. Gripping from the beginning, and subjects were close to my heart, medicine, twins , Eritrea.......
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My health
- My kids and extended family
- My friends
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
That I'm emotionally more vulnerable than I act or look. I take care of others, but in truth I'd like to be put first for once, to be cherished for who I am by a peer (I know my children and cats love me--but sometimes a person needs more!)
Friends Describe me as
Funny, Intelligent, Loyal, Sweet
A little more about me
I value loyalty, friendship, honesty, good conversations about real things, creativity....and chocolate( chocolate is a metaphor for all that is delicious ...). People have said I am particularly attractive when I belly dance. I am very comfortable with who I've become, and would love to find someone to enjoy the adventures of life with.
